Former Mormon Tracy Tennant offers a practical and instructive guide on how to avoid the six most common mistakes made by disaffected members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Insensitivity, tactlessness, and anger–among other communication errors–often result in ex-Mormons alienating themselves from LDS family and friends. This book offers sound advice from a Christian perspective on healing damaged relationships and how to overcome the sense of loss and purposelessness that hinders former Mormons from moving ahead with hope and renewed faith.
This second edition Kindle version has been updated with two new chapters: “Throwing Baby Jesus Out with the Bathwater,” which touches on ex-Mormons often giving up on God altogether after leaving the Church; and “Dealing with Toxic People,” which covers what to do when relationships turn ugly. Resources include more recommended websites and books to help in your recovery from Mormonism.
